Error in Windows 7 prevents computer from shutting down

Windows 7

About a month after Windows 7 support finally shut down Microsoft, many users still haven't come up with the idea. And now it looks like a new bug has appeared in the operating system system, which displays an error message when a user tries to disable it computer of.

"You do not have permission to turn off this computer," the message says. The most obvious solution, of course, is to unplug your computer. However many users trying to find other solutions to this new flaw that has emerged.

According to a Redditor, one user facing this particular problem, can create a new administrator profile> log in to it> log back in to the default administrator profile and after that, the shutdown issue will no longer exist.

However, experts at Quick Heal have a more reliable solution for this defect. According to the company, a problem with Windows UAC prevents systems from shutting down. However, Quick Heal says it cannot confirm the exact cause of the problem.

Therefore, it has set the steps to enable UAC using the Local Group Policy Editor in Windows 7. After completing the steps, the user must restart the system which can be done by typing "shutdown -r" in the RUN box (win + R).

Since Windows 7 has now ceased to be supported by Microsoft, the company no new operating system updates will be released. Recently, however, Microsoft was forced to create an emergency update that was widely released to get rid of a bug that bug the desktop wallpaper on some user machines.
